3 Day Workshop with Leah Meleski

In this weekend workshop, students will learn how to create volume in metal with the use of a hydraulic press. They will utilize these techniques to make a one of a kind locket.
During day 1 of the workshop we will review how to create volume with a dapping block and add hinges to make a small locket sample. During Day 2 & 3 students will create a silhouette die and an embossing die to be used with our hydraulic press. The hydraulic press allows you to create volume and/or texture with sheets of metal. A silhouette die allows you to produce a consistent pillow-form, while an embossing die produces a texture or pattern on their metal and can be created by soldering wire or sheet to another piece of metal.
Students will leave class with a small locket sample with a hinge, completed silhouette and embossing dies and samples they’ve created using their dies.
(Paid to instructor on the first day of class)
This class is open to students who have taken both beginning and intermediate jewelry classes and are confident with their soldering and sawing skills.
